Dodd-Frank turned three years old this weekend. It was a 2,300 page, unread monstrosity when it was created and it has only grown since.

Out of this Act, 14,000 pages of rules [read:laws] have been written by regulators from six agencies: the SEC, the CFTC, the CFPB, the BGFRS, the OCC, and the FDIC. On average there is a new 36 page rule (law) written every three days.

That doesn’t sound like the transparent deliberations of citizen legislators in a representative republic. The more our future is in the hands of acronyms rather than the people we elected the further we are from a government by the people and for the people.

Unfortunately, that is standard operating procedure for the massive government that resides in Washington.

If you think the current crew leading the GOP in Congress is going to mount a coherent and comprehensive charge against the Obama regime and its plans to enlarge the federal government consider the melting pool of vanilla ice cream that is Speaker John Boehner and his receding threats to Dodd-Frank:

2010: “It must be repealed.” — John Boehner

2011: Set up mandatory audits on the CFPB

2012: “It needs some big changes.” — John Boehner

2013: “My job is to facilitate a conversation.” — John Boehner

That’s just his performance on Dodd-Frank.

On ObamaCare, he is the leader of the gang that told us they would fight to the end to repeal it. Now, they are waiting it out. 

On amnesty, as this is being typed, House Republicans are working on their own version of a 2,000 page amnesty bill; complete with input from the testimony of illegal aliens.

We can’t continue to reward this perfidy with our vote. There is plenty of rooming run on the Right in 2014.  Boehner, McConnell — the whole lot of sloganeering, sunshine soldiers — must go.
